Proceedings: Home treatment of chronic respiratory insufficiency: inhalation of beta stimulators

Schweizerische medizinische Wochenschrift
C Messerli


In the author's experience, the longterm treatment of chronic obstructive lung disease should be supplemented by continuous selective stimulation of the adrenergic beta-receptors in the smooth bronchial muscles. The following procedure is recommended: inhalation of 15 min 3 times daily using an adequate aerosol with a powered nebulizer (Pari-Privat), with 2-3 ml Tyloxapol carrier solution or saline with 5 drops salbutamol.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
